With that price, I'll never use it:eek2:davring said:The 24 hour limitations are bad enough, but that just over the top for me.
That's a lot. I'll pass!fredp said:Picture is worth a thousand words.... :nono2:
Of course, that's still quite a bit cheaper than $6.99 a movie....We knew it was coming, but Wednesday Netflix made it official--starting in November, those who rent Blu-ray movies will be charged an extra dollar, in addition to standard subscription fees.
Fixed.ZBoomer said:Of course this would waste a channel somewhat, since only people with 1080/24p capability could view it.
These movies are encoded at 1080/24p, not 1080/60p. All of the data contained in a 1080/24p movie can be encoded into a 1080/60i encode, which is compatible with virtually ALL HDTVs. There would be virtually no difference between a 1080/60i and a 1080/60p encode, since the source is 1080/24p, so there's no reason to double the required bandwidth and hard drive space for virtually zero benefit, which is why it isn't done.ZBoomer said:True, but the receiver could test the TV, and let's say it could accept 1080p/60 but not 1080p/24; the receiver itself could do a 3:2 pulldown, and output 1080p/60.
Speed Racer shows up on my 612 and my 722. Of course, I don't have a 1080p compatible TV, so it would show up on my equipment.tsanders3 said:I have a VIP612 and used to have the 1080p programing on 501. About a week ago it disappeared. I called Dish tonight and one tech guy told me it was IMPOSSIBLE to get 501 1080p on a ViP612. I told him that the Dish websiteclearly states a ViP612 will do 1080p pay per view. He said he asked everybody and it was not possible. I hung up and called again and the new tech person said Dish does not have any 1080p content available right now. I really wanted to try it and was waiting for Speed Racer or something other than what they had been offering.
Wish they would get the facts straight and let me know what is going on.
